Knitwear funday - round 5: Christmas Jumper Day results

This week’s voting has closed, and the people have spoken!

Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.

There were fewer entries this week – but there were some crackers, including our first triple entry.

And now it’s time for your winners!

In joint second place we have Emma sporting a very cute looking Christmas robin.

And also in second place we have the king of DIY - Johnny and his homage to the Christmas tree.

Your winner(s) this week are the three not so wise men of IT.  

And here is their entry on in all of it's original animated glory!

Not only are these lads looking super smart in their Christmas sweaters, they are also smarter than the Survey Monkey website which would only take their animated entry if it was in eight colours and the size of a postage stamp - goddamn you technology!

And as always to the victors go the spoils…

And here are the full results…

Round 5: Christmas Jumper Day - vote for a winner

Voting for Round 5 of Knitwear funday is now open.

Your job is to vote for the one you think is the best.  The only rule is you can't vote for yourself.

This week we were doing it for Christmas Jumper Day and raising money for Charidee. 

There are only 5 entries this week, so either we're not that much of a giving bunch or a few of your were a little put off by accusations Save the Children are investing in Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms!!!  

But as you'll see, the few entries we have this week make up for our lack of quantity with the fineness of their knitwear.

RESULT - Round 4: knitwear resurrection

Round 4 of knitwear funday has ended.

The votes have been counted and a favourite has been chosen.

But before we get to the winner...

This week in third place was:

Katy taking her ducks to Prague!

Not only was she in Prague, she also took the ducks…

And in second place was…

Steve (me) skiing in with my penguin buddy.

I'm particularly proud of this one as it's a selfie - and did you know it's really hard to manually focus a camera on a timer without something to focus on?

Any-who, not even my ski goggles could out-shine this week's winner...

Kurtis and his smoking Santa!

Winning on his first attempt Kurtis in one of my all time favourite jumpers.  What's not love about beard old people smoking pipes - and snow flakes coming out of them - I mean c'mon!


As always to the victor goes the spoils…

And the results looked like this

RESULT: Round three: rise of the knit

First off - thanks for being patient about the results.  Last night was the work quiz and I didn't get a chance to do this at home.  Now I know that I can't get away with posting in the office!

So, round 3 has ended and the knit has well and truly risen.

This week we had another great mix of entries:

  • Young & old
  • Inside & outside
  • Future knit and traditional styles

And this, along with the quality of the entries, probably made it really tricksy of you to choose the winner.

The results:

There were three entries that stood out above the rest.

In joint second place we had…

Ryan in his future knit - with ears.
Oh Ryan, always the bridesmaid, and never the bride!  On the plus side, I feel like the next round could be yours…

I called this a future knit because it reminded me of some kinda Logan's Run space-age sweater.

And also in second was Kirstie in her delightful bunny jumper.

It turns out that hangover really paid off!

And your winner for Round 3: rise of the knit is…

Steve (ME!) with my arms filled with dodgeball trophies and a crazed Santa sweater.

My favourite bit of this picture isn't the jumper or the ear to ear grin - it's Mike's with his stroppy face lurking in the background.  I think he thought he deserved the trophies!

As always to the victor goes the spoils!

Midweek knitwear

With just one more sleep till round three closes I thought everyone could do with a little bit of a knitwear delight because…

This turned up in the shops, which you can own for yourself.

Nothing like Macaulay Culkin to put you in the Christmas mood.

You can't buy this though - at least not in normal clothes shops. 

Maybe I could find it here somewhere like this?

And then there is this, which has nothing to do with knitwear…
